Neptune Lines moves to early detection measures using condition analysis technology

Neptune Lines is hosting shipboard trials of a next-level digital service for Marine Powertrain Condition Analysis, in a collaborative initiative between METIS Cyberspace Technology and Geislinger GmbH.

The trials will interconnect the latest Geislinger GMS Mk6 continuous monitoring and measuring system for rotating components of the entire marine propulsion powertrain with the METIS IoT platform for data analytics. The combination will provide superior, in-depth analytics to correlate condition evaluations of the ship’s propulsion system with navigational and operational conditions already being analyzed by METIS. The new digital service will provide information to the crew and to the technical department regarding the condition of the main engine vibration damper and any abnormalities likely to cause torsional vibrations on the main engine and propulsion shaft.

Neptune Lines has already signed a fleet-wide contract with METIS Cyberspace Technology in late 2020 to implement its data acquisition and advanced analytics platform in a first commitment to deploy the power of Artificial Intelligence in vessel management by a Pure Car & Truck Carrier operator.

Forward-looking ever since its establishment, Neptune Lines continues to invest in business systems and the latest technologies to ensure safe and secure operations and seamless quality service with a reduced environmental footprint.
